Coaraze

Coaraze lies at an altitude of 650 m, not far from Mercantour National Park, and is known as "sunshine village". The steep cobblestone lanes, arch-covered passageways, houses built of stone or painted blue, yellow or pink in Italian style and the flower-decked squares have attracted many artists and celebrities, some of whom, such as Jean Cocteau or Ponce de Léon, signed the village’s sundials.
